  • Case Study
    • " Two thirds of Calcutta's population live in the officially recognized slums the so-called Bustees. At a cost of around 2 dollars a month they live in primitive huts made out of clay, corrugated iron and old wooden boxes" (Wenk)
  • Case Study
    • But still less fortunate are "the worst reserved for almost one million of the dirtiest - in the truest sense of the word - that possess only a tin bowl and a dirt-encrusted mat " (Wenk).
  • Why we chose this topic
    • Calcutta is one of the many cities in the world where poverty is at its worst
    • Second of all Calcutta is India's Cultural Capital, "full of rich culture and opportunities" ("Service-Learning Program in Kolkata, India"). If many of the people are left in poverty, how will the culture pass on and spread, especially when they can't have children because they are too poor
    • Third of all, we found the great organization IPSL which works on poverty in Calcutta and co-operates with great Mother Teresa's Homes

  • IPSL
    • The International Partnership for Service-Learning and Leadership
    • We choose IPSL because…
      • participants will help provide direct care with those in need
      • help in basic medical care
      • They’ll also help teach street children and take care of old people.
      • At the same time of giving help, they’ll also have a chance to learn about Calcutta’s history and culture and have a tour around India
  • What IPSL does to help
    • Once you send your application, they will look through it and chose a group of people to go.
    • Once you reach Calcutta, you start to learn about their culture and history while giving direct parental care and basic medical care
  • What we like about their program
    • You get to travel around India and experience culture and diversity and at the same time help out with the poor and give them opportunities and better lives
  • Interactive Activity #1
    • Imagine…
    • (Close your eyes)

  • Who we are
    • K ids R educing P overty in C alcutta
    • Raise money for IPSL to expand its program
    • Educate others about IPSL & poverty
  • Aim
    • As KRPC, our aim too raise awareness of poverty and IPSL in Shanghai and raise funds to enhance IPSL Calcutta's facilities.
  • Why you should be informed about this issue…
    • Poverty today is a global issue because it does not only affect certain area; it affects lots of people of all races all over the world.
    • People today are so poor that they have to live in substandard housing and drink unsafe drinking water
    • Disease spreads easier with the poor unable to afford medical bills and an education
    • Death from poverty weekly is among the hundreds of thousands
    • These people do not deserve this, it just comes to them
    • If poverty continues to spread in Calcutta, the cultural capital of India as stated before, devastating consequences can occur
    • The world will lose an unaccountable amount of precious history as the people are the ones who pass it on, and if they die without passing it down or cannot have children to pass it on, much will be lost
    • We need to stop this unjust and torment of human rights.
